12/26 – FOMO trade analysis

I Started my day trading career with Tim Sykes, where I learned the basics of high risk day trading. When I wanted to learn more, I joined Investors Underground. They opened my eyes to new setups and gave me a wider scope of the markets. The DVD’s that helped me the most were Tim Grittani’s Trading Tickers and Nate Michaud’s Tandem Trader.  I use FINVIZ to scan for stocks for my daily watch list.

Just some Simple images that help me to become a better trader and I hope it helps you too!

20181226 - TWTR loss

To sum things up: “this was a total stupid FOMO trade because I missed the big move on JD”. It looked good and my bias was that the SPY would go red and drag this with it. Which didn’t happen and I was stopped out in less then a minute. I thought it was 5 seconds but it turned out to be 1 minute and 5 seconds. In at $27.00 stopped out at $27.15


On Monday I traded JD and was stopped out in 20 seconds! Here’s the chart. This was a long trade and FOMO trade. Second time in I stopped out at break even. Definitely not the best trades ever!

20181224 - JD - long

What I learned is that you need to have some confirmation. But also the market can eat you and do what ever it wants to do. Initially I didn’t wait for confirmation (higher lows in case of a long / buying) I just jumped in at a price I thought was perfect. The second time I bought at the same price, with confirmation. However, I got impatient and sold at break even because I did not want to lose more then USD 10.00 / commissions.
